Planning activities: In planning children’s activities at Bradley Bar we reflect on the different ways in which children learn and provide a supportive environment that gives our children the freedom to learn in their own individual styles. The EYFS identifies three characteristics of effective learning:
- Playing and exploring (engagement), this characteristic is evidenced by children finding out and exploring, playing with what they know and being willing to ‘have a go’.
- Active learning (motivation), as evidenced by being involved and concentrating, perseverance and enjoying and achieving what they set out to do.
- Creating and thinking critically (thinking), this involves encouraging the children to have their own ideas, make links and choose ways to do things.
